Quilt With Us

I have a 1950 Featherweight (Singer 221), and it's my go-to sewing machine for piecing. Anyone else here have one of these little gems? More than one?

A friend had hers painted:

Is this cute? The person who did it specializes in repainting cars.

I have 3.  A 1937, 1939 and a Centennial 1950.  Used to sew all the time on the 1937, till I got a 301A in a table.  Since the sewing room is no more,,, I use the 301A.  Just got a 1889 Fiddle Base treadle a couple of weeks ago.  Needs a belt and some loving but hopefully will be able to sew on it in the future. Have a number more,, to long to list.

Nice! My mother gave me her Featheweight when I was eight. I sold it to get money for Christmas presents for the kids when we were hard up one year. I replaced it a few years later with another one the same age.

i would love one, but since money is tight, i haven't been able to get myself one. no matter. i just admire other people's featherweights!

I have 5 of them. They keep finding me for some odd reason. I use them to teach my grandkids sewing once they graduate from the handcranks. They seem to enjoy the cuteness. Got another one and after I taught my oldest DGD to do regular maintenance and oiling she is now comfortable enough to keep it and sew with it at her house. I prefer to piece on my Pfaff treadle. So smooth and quiet.
I have one from the 50's. It is my go-to machine for piecing. They have such a lovely stitch. I will buy another if I can find one for a good price. Joleen

I just bought one at the Brimfield flea market in October of lst year before we moved down here,,,,,,I love it so very much.
